Squirrel update

For the previous four days the squirrel came to the peanut feeder at *exactly* 08:00. On day five I confidently predict to my OH that the squirrel will be there at 08:00.

So, what happens? Of course, the squirrel doesn't arrive until 08:45. Just goes to show you can't rely on a squirrel. BTW I've never seen a squirrel with a watch.

@Alastair
This was Monday morning. Maybe "our" squirrel doesn't like Mondays. Still, there is probably a family to feed, a dray to keep...

@fitheach Of course squirrels don't have watches. Rabbits do.

@mansr
Nah. You're telling squirrels have to go and ask rabbits what time it is. I can't believe that.

@fitheach The traffic must have been nuts!

*grabs jacket and heads for the door*
@fitheach Sunday must have been a rough night for squirrel.

That's it, the squirrels had a hard night on the Frangelico & Amaretto.

@fitheach That just sounds inconsiderate lol making you wait. It's like he doesn't think your time is as important as his...unbelievable! Lol great shot! Looks like a big guy!

@Rinkhals
I can't be certain, but it might be a female. There isn't much difference in size between the sexes.

I'm still impressed that for four days the squirrel was able to arrive within a few seconds of 8am. How and why?
